In the one pic it looks like they put a trans cooler on it which would have helped it live.I agree that with no high RPM launches with slicks was a saving feature.Tom

Tom, you said you "gave the drawings to Ken". Were those PMD drawings of the units or something else ?

Tom, In a photo in the HOT ROD article it shows finned brake drums. As I recall, the finned drum option was for front drums. Anything special about finned rear drums on the Goldsmith rear?

Default Ahh thank you 406

Iím very interested I the road racing #50 car. Wish it lived to change that famous cobra/Ferrari battle. Sure Looked promising because of its 50/50 weight distribution. Of course recent super car technology is 50/50. I am aware of the low stress of road racing compared to drag cars. Really want to see how the replica was coming along.. Iím sure it canít be exact replica of the one off goldsmith car but still way cool to see somebody getting as close as possible to the lost car. Thank you guys for the information on the incredible work that the factory has done. Looks like Iíll need face book. Aaarrrr I hate FB.

Yes agree %100. Way up here on the cold side of our country we have a road course racing series at lime rock park in Connecticut (on hold last year). itís got some really cool nostalgic replica race cars. They arenít the original high dollar collectible museum cars guys will try to get as close as possible mostly the paint jobs , car numbers on the doors, sponsor decals side pipes exc. and maybe some of the engine configurations. These guys are definitely not able to completely replicate exact factory race cars. Mostly from the Trans Am series races. Some are early nascar repos too. I thought it would be definitely a showstopper to see a 63 even with A conventional driveline show up for the events. Thinking of selling my 62 drag car to build a 63 road car.

Last time I recall seeing the #50 Replica was at the Pontiac Nats in 2015.

Here's a link to photos of Rodgers build;
